Re: Parallel motion chords, I was trying to think of some tunes where they are featured and to hear if they sound cheezy in context.
Here's some that I immediately thought of - some cheezy, some not:
( John Tejada - Chorgs ) ( which to me sounds like a succession of minor 9th chords )
( Inner city - Big Fun ) 1 finger minor chord ( and Good Life )
And then you have the obvious I-IV-V in a minor key with the likes of 'Pump Up The Jam' by Technotronic and 'Move Your Body' by Marshall Jefferson.
I'm having a hard time thinking of any others but there's probably loads that have used sampled chords ( which obviously will result in unchanging intervals ), esp. during the Rave era!
How effective have they been used? Tough one, on a commercial level quite a bit but then some are not my cup of tea at all. I quite like that Chorgs track though.
I know this is not any benefit to the thread but I got thinking about it and wondered how many tracks are out there ( good one's ) where this is featured.
